Rumor of the week
Sadly, it’s not a huge rumor this week, nor is it a big rumor. We all know Netflix has been a big buyer of Paramount movies throughout the pandemic, be it The Chicago 7 trial or Lovebirds for a global version or Spongebob: Sponge on the Run internationally. Those sales aren’t over as we’ve heard that another great Paramount movie may be released on Netflix soon.
